(CNN) - If it feels like it's been a while since you've heard new music from the Backstreet Boys, it's because it has. But, as we all enjoy saying every few years: Backstreet's Back.

The group has released a new single, "Don't Go Breaking My Heart," from a still-untitled forthcoming album.

The song is the group's first single since 2013.

A music video featuring the tune was also released early Thursday.

The single and upcoming album have both been long awaited by Backstreet fans. The band's popularity has seen a resurgence thanks to a highly popular residency at Planet Hollywood Casino and Resort. Organizers said last year's performances were among the fastest-selling shows in Las Vegas history.

The band, which celebrated 25 years together last month, resumes its Las Vegas run in July. A spokesperson told CNN that the new single will be added to the Las Vegas show's existing set list when the Backstreet Boys return.

Their upcoming album is set to be released later this year.
